  • Well, the last time they were gone and I was alone in the house, I spent most of the time going, "I'm alone in the house? OMG, I'm alone in the house! What should I do? I'm alone, I can do anything I want? What should I do? Hmm...I think I'll - crap, they're home already!!" lol

    If they were gone for a few hours or the day, I'd catch up on my shoes, maybe watch a movie or two, read. And to be honest, tnm's idea of a long bike ride is sounding pretty good. My kids aren't slowpokes, but they want to go way faster than I want to go! lol

  • id go for a long bike ride first. i cant go very far with all 3 kids because, honestly, they are slow pokes LOL. id like to go for a long time and as far as i want to. then id probably come home and read for hours, and probably sleep a little. like jjk, i lead an extraordinarily exciting life!

  • My husband took the kids to the trampoline place today for a few hours. I cleaned their bathroom and then sat and watched a rerun of Bones. I am such an exciting person!

  • The last time I got a break I did housework
    Next time I get a break I am going to work on one of those money making sites.
    With any luck the holidays will be FAT this year.

  • SLEEP. No lie though, if housework needed to be done I'd probably do some of that too. It's soooooooooo much easier to get done without interruption.

  • I usually get a 3 hour break from my 4 older kids every Sunday morning when the bus comes to pick them up. I do my grocery shopping then, so I only have Tori, and she's easy...strap her down in the cart and go!
